BVA is open 7 days a week, including holidays from 8am to midnight. Pet owners will no longer need to drive to Pittsburgh for emergency care except for that rare wee hour of the night emergency. A technician will work overnight to monitor inpatients and to ensure they get the proper amount of IV fluids and care that is required. In special circumstances we may still recommend transferring a critical patient to PVSEC, AVETs or MedVet in Ohio. We take pride in seeing any many emergencies as possible to serve the community and surrounding areas for efficiently.
